the president and still get their spending? >> that was a great piece by steven moore. having watched this and reading that piece i'm worried that the republicans could bend more to your point. but i think the general public needs to be worried because there are other types of taxes coming. nancy pelosi said something that was really interesting about how to get the taxes. she says she was fairly agnostic about it. in other words, just throw the hook out there and whatever we pull up in the net that is what we pull up. any one out there that doesn't think that personal ex. exemptions won't eventually be on the table. when you talk about healthcare, problem your employer that is paying for your healthcare that is an economic benefit and the government will come after that, too. a gas emissions tax and national sales tax. all of this stuff is still on the table. where the republicans draw the line and continue to fight remains to be seen. i do know all of these things are on the quivers. >> neil: but when taxes start going up they don't stop cold. >> and they want that trillion dollars.

's job council, you measure years by meetings, not one. steve moore, that doesn't seem right, but anyone, what do you make of it -- but anyway what do you make of it. >> this is distinguished men and women around the country. they came four meetings to give the president advice how to make the economy grow faster. it looks like the president took almost every recommendation and did exactly the opposite. maybe they have a knack for a number of months. >> neil: whether i saw that, well, you know you and i attend a lot of meetings, not together because i don't think i could deal with that -- maybe they do something on the phone or e-mail each other or here a great idea for jobs. i don't know. i'm trying to give the best light on this, i don't think that happened either. >> i actually read the list, scores of recommendations about how to make this economy grow faster and create more jobs. everything from immigration policy, more skilled people in and create jobs in america. let's bring the tax rates down and reform the tax system. let's have more pro drilling and pro energy policy. let's get

will go back to steve moore, there was a lot of stuff he was citing and you were citing and i looked this over. it does not address the big cliff issues. there are a lot of goodies. >>guest: there are. what is infuriating as a taxpayer we are supposes to clean this out. you played the clip of president saying we are getting rid of the special loophole but mr. president you signed into law a bill that adds literally tens of billions of special provisions that most people do not have, small businesses do not have unless they have a lawyer, an accountant and lobbyists in washington. let me say this: the bill is so bad, so bad, it almost makes the case if tax reform. we have to blow up this tax code and start over. if you want exhibit a, read this document. >>neil: they could have widened the margins and cut the puppy down to ten pages but i digress. back to howard berg who is made famous by reading the entire health care bill and telling us what a disaster it would be. what he has discovered is next. >>neil: you are look like at howard berg who stopped reading the 154 fiscal cliff bill.
